Apple iPad 3 (with Retina display)
On the Resolute Desk in the Oval Office, the President keeps his Apple iPad (third-generation) in close range. Obama has been known to dabble across various platforms. He uses Macs and PCs, BlackBerrys and iPads, making him platform "agnostic," like many by not endorsing or using a single platform.
iPads offer enterprise security and back-end policy management by network administrators, allowing (of all people) the President's tablet to keep data secure. Obama's iPad 3 includes a Retina display, but the particular model has since been discontinued. However, even though the iPad and the iPhone have almost identical user interfaces, he was reportedly "befuddled" by a voter's iPhone when he tried to make a phone call with one.
